Final Week: Week beginning 17.07.17

Next week is our final week of year 4 and will begin on Monday and Tuesday with two transition days in year 5.

The rest of the week will be spent completing our Angry Earth booklets, answering maths problems (hopefully outside) and on our STEM project.

As we will be completing out STEM projects on Friday, there will not be the opportunity this year to bring in anything from home on the last day of term.

Thank you to everyone who has filled in the reply slips from their child’s school report. The comments so far have been very positive.

Wishing you all an enjoyable summer holiday and we will see you all again around school when you begin once more in year 5.

Science

Our topic for the last couple of weeks has been ‘What Makes The Earth Angry?’ We have looked at Volcanoes, Earthquakes and Tsuanmi’s.  Last week we worked in groups to build volcanoes and yesterday we used vinegar, bicarbonate of soda and red food colouring to make our volcanoes ‘erupt!’
   
    
    
    
   

Week Beginning 26.06.17

Next week is Assessment Week.

In English and Maths, we will be finding out how far the pupils have progressed during this year.

We will be beginning a new topic, What Makes The World So Angry? We will be discovering all about volcanoes and earthquakes and the rocks that they produce.

With the weather being as good as it is, please make sure your child has their PE kit every day. If we get an opportunity to go outside more than once in the week we will take it to get out of our hot classroom.

There are only a few weeks left for you children to get their reading badges. Please listen to your child every night, sign their diary and hopefully they will get the next reading badge before the end of the year.

Pre-Learning: 19th June

Next week is Armed Forces week in school as well as Sports Day.

In English we will be looking at and writing our own examples of war poetry.

They may bring outdoor trainers in and they will also may need to bring a bottle of water to drink during the afternoon. The summer fair will follow sports day at the end of the school day.
